The Gap Still Yawns

BrdgeThis week the rows of steel rods has plastic sheeting tucked in cozily around them.  To ward off the damp night air, perhaps?  Or so  unwary birds don’t impale themselves?

The deadline is here and the bridge is a long way from done.

The gaps on either side of the concrete arch still present a formidable drop.  The little Brdge2stream still rushes through its temporary culvert while rainwater gathers at the sides.  The road on either side still awaits paving.

And all of us await the moment we can once again merrily dash across our village bridge.
